Outfits of the season!

Many many many of you have told me you liked my style and asked if I can do an outfit of the day (OOTD) video! BUT, I feel those can get kind of boring, so I came up with my own idea. Outfits of the season (OOTS) YAY! Let me know what you guys think, if you like any outfits, if you would wear any, or if you totally hate them! You let me know! I mean, it won't do much cause that's just a little bit of my style, but yeah, I wear what I like to wear.

Let me know what you think, and enjoy!

Hard work pays off!

Sometimes we may feel like we're taking on too much in our lives, we feel that we can't handle it, and that we'll fail. But you know what, life only gives us things that we can handle. If we can't hand it, we won't have those things thrown at us. 

I was taking 5 classes this semester, working 4-5 days a week, babysitting, making videos, and studying to do good in those classes. It was EXTREMELY hard. I never got a good amount of sleep, it was always 3-5 hours per night. But you know what, my hard work paid off. I was able to pay off some of my credit cards (still have one more to go), and i got an A in my spanish class. I was so happy to see I got an A after missing six classes, but i studied my little butt off for each quiz and each exam so that I can get an A. I was actually hoping for at least an A-, but i got better than that! See, hard work does pay off. Doesn't always mean it'll pay off right away, but in the end things will always work out and I firmly believe in that. 

So when you feel like you can't handle something and you feel like breaking down because you're just so worn out and tired, just stop to think that you can do this. That you're only doing so much to achieve something, and when it's over, you will have achieved the most greatest thing of all because your hard work will pay off!

Good luck to all of us hardworkers,

Need more hours!

Sometimes we all feel like we need just a few more hours in a day, even if it's just to take a nap! I have those days, like every day! I only sleep like 4-5 hours per night because I have just way too many things to do! A lot of the time I'll also get distracted, so a paper to write will take me like the whole day when it really should only take me about a couple of hours!

What I realized is that we should do the things we don't want to do first! For example, writing a paper! We should do it first to get it over with! I know it's not fun, but sometimes things just have to get done. By doing the things we least like first thing in the morning will give us more time to do the things we do like later on in the day. 

If you're also on a very tight schedule, try getting up earlier! Now that summer is almost here I know most of you will probably sleep in and get up from bed probably between 11am - 1pm. But the problem with that is that you're wasting your whole day of doing nothing but sleeping! I hate that feeling when I get up at 11 and I feel like I already wasted my morning and did nothing productive. It's why I like having early classes or why I like having to go to work early in the morning. That way once class is over or work is over, I'm already awake and have the rest of the day to do the things I need/want to do.

Just a little tip for the summer, don't waste your whole day! I'm sure you can find something to do to at least be in some way productive. It'll make you feel so good to know you're doing something than to sit around doing nothing and being bored all day long!

So find something to do!

When we really look at all that we do in a day, we probably wast a good 3 hours probably doing nothing! Instead of doing nothing, do something, and then we won't need more hours in a day! I probably should take my own advice as well. We can all work on that together!

Being productive and off to study for my final,

Prom makeup!

So I made another video today, prom makeup. It's a silvery kind of makeup for those of you who have a single colored dress or a dress with silver in it. It won't really look that great if your dress is gold. So i'm also going to try to make another video with some golds for your makeup.

But anywways, how many of you are going to prom?!

I remember back when I was in High School, i never went to my prom. I went to my sister's prom as her date, but I never went to my own. And I sort of regret it now, I should have went. For those of you debating whether you should go or not, trust me when I say go. It's something you only get to experience once in your life. So go, and have an amazing time!

Now, here's a video on how to do your makeup like show above for prom :D

Hope you all enjoy!

Facebook cool stuffs!

I think I could say that MOST of you have a facebook account. You'll rarely find someone who doesn't have a facebook nowadays. 

I came across something awesome today! A FACEBOOK BANNER! you know at the top of your profile page where your pictures show up? well now you can have a banner that looks something like this!

I discovered this on this website here. And they have so many cool things! You can upload your own picture, you can create a banner of your name, you can choose from their already existing banners and quotes and it's such a creative idea!

The one above is the one I have on my personal facebook page. Unfortunately this doesn't work on fan pages, because that's where I originally wanted it. =/ But oh wells, maybe one day they'll have it available for fan pages too. 

Here's some more examples of what people have:

hHave fun searching for a banner for your page!

And don't forget to become a part of my family on facebook!

Banners and quotes all in one!

End of the world!

So today is supposed to be the end of the world. There was a cult going around that  said that May 21s at 6pm, it'll be the end of the world. I of course do not believe in this stuff. i believe it'll be the end of the world when the sun dies out and that won't be for millions or trillions of years. and even then. can't we live without sunlight?

Well, that's besides the point. Point is this cult said that it will rain for 7 days and 7 nights before it's the end of the world and then today at 6pm (which is in about 10 minutes), it'll be the end of the world. And well it has been raining a lot. Although i know it's not going to happen, i'm like waiting til 6pm to be like "oh yeah, this really looks like the end of the world to me". anyways, this kind of stuff has been going on for YEARS! many many many years. people all interpret the Bible the way they want to interpret it and come t conclusions such as the world ending today. and if it doesn't end today, they'll think of some excuse, and say it'll happen in 5 months (because there's something in the Bible about a 5 month period). I don't really know, i'm not that religious. I'm more scientific because i need proof of things happening, i can't just believe in something else because someone said so without any proof, but that's just me. I'm not trash talking anyone's religion for the record. Religion is a very powerful thing, and i'm actually taking a religion class in school now. 

Anyways, 8 minutes now. DUN DUN DUN!

Eating healthy!

So eating healthy is actually very important. Like they say "you are what you eat". 

I personally am NOT the healthiest eater, I eat a lot of junk food like candy and cookies! But I also drink a lot of green tea, chamoumille, or regular tea, and I also love water. Oh and salads, have also been one of my favorite things to eat!

I love fruits (my favorite is strawberries) and veggies (baby carrots and celery with ranch dressing). 

So many people ask me how I stay fit and skinny. I don't really have an answer for that though because I don't exercise. All I can think of is that I eat a lot of fruits aand veggies because they're great snacks for when you get hungry! And salad is always like my choice of food, with chicken of course otherwise it probably wouldn't fill me up!

So to start you guys eating healthy, try making a salad for dinner! Something like this, that I just ate!
My salad consists of chicken breast, romaine lettuce AND spinach, grape tomatoes, baby carrots, and shredded american cheese. I later drizzled some ranch dressing on top! Not so much to the point where my salad would be swimming in dressing, but enough to coat everything lightly in my salad! AND it was soooo delicious!

I hope this can inspire you all to eat healthy! After all, summer is getting closer!

Ranch dressing and salad,

Friday the 13th!

Many people fear the day of Friday the 13th. But why do people fear it? The really strange thing is that most of the people who believe the day is unlucky offer no explanation at all, logical or illogical. As with most superstitions, people fear Friday the 13th for its own sake, without any need for background information. The origins and legends of this superstition do go way back, but that's all it is, a myth. 

The thing is, we fear this day because we feel that bad things will happen to us. But you know what, it's all in your head. If you fear the day and keep thinking bad things will happen, they will. Any one little thing that goes wrong in your day you will blame on friday the 13th and you'll end up forever fearing this day. Bad things happening are a part of our daily lives. It would be cool if bad things only happened on friday the 13th and not any other day of the year, but that's not how it works. Bad things happen all the time, not just on friday the 13th, making that just a regular day out of the year!

Instead of fearing this day, think positively! Don't think bad things will happen, but reverse it, and think that you'll have good luck today! That good things will happen. Instead of picking out the bad, pick out all the good and focus on that! It's all in your head when it comes to superstitions and it's up to you whether you choose to believe in them or not. 

For a happy day, join me and think positive!

Make-up forever has a new lipstick!

After I spent hours looking for a purple lipstick that I like, months later, makeup forever comes out with a purple lipstick! It's actually a very pretty color, its a pearly purple.
This lipstick is number 15 from MAKE UP FOR EVER in pearly violet. here is the link to buy it. The color they show you on that website is not the exact color, it's actually darker.
I have it on my lips here... (and also a little bit of benefit lip gloss in the color KISS YOU, click here)
But that is generally what the new lipstick from make up for ever looks like. it's very pretty! BUT, i'm going to stick with my made up version of purple, because not as many people will be able to get the same color! Here is my version!
Mine is more of a lighter purple with a hint of pink and metallic shine. It's up to you for which one you like better and which looks better on you! You be the judge!

But for my creation, here is the video again for those of you that missed it.

Enjoy the purpleness, don't be afraid to try bold colors!

Happy Mother's Day!

To all of the mother's out there, i want to wish you all a very Happy Mother's Day! And to those who don't have a mommy, know that I love you! Each and every one of you! I may not have human kids of my own, but I have a prince that I love dearly, my puppy!

I've watched him grow bigger as each day passed by, right before my eyes. Each day filled with so much love, and all the toys he throws at me, hehe. from a little baby...

To a big prince, that I spend each and every lovely day with. Well part of my day because I still go to school. I love when he greets me and jumps all over me the second i walk through the door, and all the love he has for me by cuddling up with me. He is my baby, no matter what. 
I also love my mommy very very much, for all that she's ever done for me, as well as my other siblings. All that she had to go through to get to where we are today, and the constant battles she has to face. I love you mommy, always and forever <3
yep, my hair is different in this picture, don't exactly have a really updated picture of my mother and I!

So for those who don't have a mommy, or have someone else they've lived with, tell them you love them and if you don't , well i love you! Fill your hearts with love and happiness today, from me to you.

My cutzie toothbrush!

I officially think I need to do a "what to bring on a sleepover" video. Every time I sleep at a friend's house, I ALWAYS forget something! and that something is always a toothbrush, so each time I end up buying a new one. A video like that would really help me out as I'm packing stuff for the sleepover, I could just play the video and run around my house getting each thing.


Anyways, back to regular letters and not caps lock haha. 

This time at the sleepover, instead of getting a boring ol' toothrbush with that cap thing on it, and a small one that you'd normally bring on a sleepover, I bought a very cute and cheap toothbrush! i believe it was $1.99, it was on small from $4.99! This toothbrush just caught my eye and I said "it doesn't matter if it says 4-6 year olds because i must buy you anyway"

hehe, sometimes i should be 5, because i love winnie the pooh so much!

The only bad thing about the toothbrush is that it's so tiny. Like the bristles part. Because it's made for 4-6 year olds, they have tiny mouths. Add antoher 13-15 years to that and you'll get my age, and well I have a much bigger mouth and bigger teeth. So it takes me a little while to brush my teeth with this toothbrush to make sure i brush every spot!

Still, those extra few minutes are worth it because I get to spend time with pooh bear!

I'll stop being a loser now, and making you guys think i'm a weirdo haha

Winnie the pooh,

The coolest PEN in the world!

No need to carry different colored pens with you everywhere! Well if you're like me, your notes are all in different colors, and everything is highlighted haha. But no more!

There's this cool pen now that scans the color you want, and voila, you can write or draw in the color! This is soo cool, but also extremely expensive, so i won't be getting one. But i still think it's cool!

Where can you get one?! Well i haven't figured that out yet. I've been trying to look for it online to post a link here for where you can buy one because this would be great for any artist... but i can't find anything. I don't even know what this coolio pen is called... so i just call it the color pen scanner hehe. But if you guys find it let me know!

Making life colorful,

Pumpkin pancakes...

Does anyone know a good recipe for pumpkin pancakes?! I've been trying to make them all morning, and failed miserably. If they were thick they took like half an hour to cook, and then still weren't good, if they were thinner, they became crunchy and weren't cooked on the inside. I don't know what's wrong with the recipe I used... but it so did not work and I was left with no pumpkin pancakes for breakfast.

SO please, if anyone is a better cook than I am, please send over a good recipe I could use so i could try again. It would be greatly appreciated! I probably should never cook again... but I will try anyway!

Pumpkin pancakes failed, hahah
